Holm Voigt, Sujan Maharjan, Asia Khamzina.  2013.  Afforestation of degraded cropland as part of integrated agricultural water and land management in Khorezm, Uzbekistan.  Water is a critical resource in the lower reaches of the Amu Darya due to climate aridity and high demands of irrigated agriculture and hydropower in the river basin. In the study region of Khorezm the decades of intensive irrigation led to elevated groundwater tables, resulting in ubiquitous soil salinization and adverse impact on crop production. The afforestation of degraded cropland patches with salt-tolerant trees that draw on groundwater, showed to be effective in increasing the land’s productive and carbon sink potential while contributing to rural income. This study addresses the impact of tree planting on the water and salt balance at the field scale, considering temporal and spatial variations. To this end, the dynamics of groundwater, soil water and solutes as well as the (ground) water use in three tree species was monitored at two afforestation sites, about 2 ha each. Further Information
